MM-DS-12

MediaManifold High-Definition CATV Distribution System

Discontinued

This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

  • 12-zone CATV distribution system
  • Expandable from 24 to 576 zones
  • High-power, high-headroom, low-noise, and low-distortion

Today's High Definition digital cable systems demand a high quality signal to work properly. A poor digital signal results in pixelation, freezing, and even complete loss of picture. Crestron's MediaManifold is designed specifically for HD digital cable* to ensure a clean, full-bandwidth signal at every TV throughout a home or small business.

The MediaManifold MM-DS-12 is a 12-zone bidirectional CATV distribution amplifier featuring individual gain and tilt adjustment on every output. The MM-DS-12 integrates all of the elements of a complete professional head-end into a single compact module. High power and headroom combine with low noise and distortion to deliver exceptional performance for distributing both analog and digital cable TV signals*.

Simplicity without Compromise

Designing and installing a high-performance residential or small commercial cable TV system is easy with MediaManifold. The MM-DS-12 eliminates the numerous splitters, combiners, amplifiers, and cables that make up an ordinary distribution system, replacing them all with a single, compact surface-mount module. Each of its 12 zone connections supports up to 300 feet of homerun RG6 coaxial cable feeding a single television or set-top box. An additional output is provided for cable modem and digital phone, and an external modulator can also be connected to enable signals from security cameras and other video sources to be combined and distributed along with the main cable TV channels.

Automatic Adjustment

Compared to conventional CATV distribution amps, MediaManifold offers much greater capability for proper adjustment, providing independent gain and tilt settings for every zone. Adjusting these settings is extremely easy with MediaManifold. Simply by entering the cable length for each zone, the MM-DS-12 sets the optimum gain and tilt settings automatically.

Determining the cable lengths is also very simple using the optional MM-HTDR Cable Analyzer†. The MM-HTDR employs state-of-the-art "time domain reflectometry" to determine the length and integrity of each RG6 cable run. At the press of a button, the MM-HTDR analyzes the cable and transfers the length measurement to the MM-DS-12, setting the appropriate gain and tilt values automatically.

Using MediaManifold, complete system adjustment is fast and easy and every TV receives an optimized signal.

Easy Expansion

Adding the MM-DE-12 MediaManifold Expander† provides an additional 12 zone outputs. Housed in an identical compact module, the MM-DE-12 connects to the MM-DS-12 using three 'F' cables, supporting a total of 24 zones with automatic gain and tilt adjustment for every zone output. Additional zones can be achieved by cascading any zone connection to a second MediaManifold system, enabling complete systems of over 500 zones.
